Hadelendings in Service - World War I
At the ninth stevne in 1918, a ten member committee was given responsibility for compiling a list of all those who served their country in World War I. The Lag voted to secure a flag to honor the veterans from the Lag. All Hadelendings who had one or more sons (or daughters!) who served in the war were asked to send in one dollar to have their children represented by a star in the "Hadeland Service Flag."
The names gathered by E.J. Canton, Watson MN; C. A. Walby, Clear Lake WI; Louis Blegan, Hudson WI; Mrs. H.C. Ryen, Moorhead MN; Gilbert Carlson, Dawson MN; Otto Kammerud, Blanchardville WI; Miss Milla Paulson, Northwood IA; Mrs. Martha Ulvik, Aneta ND; Mrs. Anna Timmeland, Baden ND; and A. Rosendahl, Landa ND are listed here in two sets of tables - one set is alphabetized by last name and the other by hometown within state.
